Black and Hispanic Kids Speak Fluent Chinese

It's an after school program in NYC that has 800 students enrolled called the Global Language Project.

Nice video I just found on the program.

Good points from their why pagee:

  • 21 of the top 25 industrialized countries begin the study of world languages in grades K-5, while the majority of U.S. students begin studying a second language at age 14. (U.S. Committee on Economic Development)
  • 80% of students in Europe speak at least two languages.
  • Of the over 55 million students in U.S. public schools, only 50,000 students study Mandarin Chinese - a language spoken by over 1 billion people worldwide.
  • Only 14% of U.S. students consider themselves bilingual.
